Acts 10

ASV 1 Now [there was] a certain man in Caesarea, Cornelius by name, a centurion of the band called the Italian [band], NIV 1 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. ASV 2 a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, who gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always. NIV 2 He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. ASV 3 He saw in a vision openly, as it were about the ninth hour of the day, an angel of God coming in unto him, and saying to him, Cornelius. NIV 3 One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision. He distinctly saw an angel of God, who came to him and said, "Cornelius!" ASV 4 And he, fastening his eyes upon him, and being affrighted, said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are gone up for a memorial before God. NIV 4 Cornelius stared at him in fear. "What is it, Lord?" he asked. The angel answered, "Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God. ASV 5 And now send men to Joppa, and fetch one Simon, who is surnamed Peter: NIV 5 Now send men to Joppa to bring back a man named Simon who is called Peter. ASV 6 he lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side. NIV 6 He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea." ASV 7 And when the angel that spake unto him was departed, he called two of his household-servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually; NIV 7 When the angel who spoke to him had gone, Cornelius called two of his servants and a devout soldier who was one of his attendants. ASV 8 and having rehearsed all things unto them, he sent them to Joppa. NIV 8 He told them everything that had happened and sent them to Joppa. ASV 9 Now on the morrow, as they were on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour: NIV 9 About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. ASV 10 and he became hungry, and desired to eat: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance; NIV 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. ASV 11 and he beholdeth the heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending, as it were a great sheet, let down by four corners upon the earth: NIV 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. ASV 12 wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts and creeping things of the earth and birds of the heaven. NIV 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles of the earth and birds of the air. ASV 13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill and eat. NIV 13 Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat." ASV 14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common and unclean. NIV 14 "Surely not, Lord!" Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean." ASV 15 And a voice [came] unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, make not thou common. NIV 15 The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." ASV 16 And this was done thrice: and straightway the vessel was received up into heaven. NIV 16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven. ASV 17 Now while Peter was much perplexed in himself what the vision which he had seen might mean, behold, the men that were sent by Cornelius, having made inquiry for Simon's house, stood before the gate, NIV 17 While Peter was wondering about the meaning of the vision, the men sent by Cornelius found out where Simon's house was and stopped at the gate. ASV 18 and called and asked whether Simon, who was surnamed Peter, were lodging there. NIV 18 They called out, asking if Simon who was known as Peter was staying there. ASV 19 And while Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. NIV 19 While Peter was still thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, "Simon, three men are looking for you. ASV 20 But arise, and get thee down, and go with them, nothing doubting: for I have sent them. NIV 20 So get up and go downstairs. Do not hesitate to go with them, for I have sent them." ASV 21 And Peter went down to the men, and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come? NIV 21 Peter went down and said to the men, "I'm the one you're looking for. Why have you come?" ASV 22 And they said, Cornelius a centurion, a righteous man and one that feareth God, and well reported of by all the nation of the Jews, was warned [of God] by a holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words from thee. NIV 22 The men replied, "We have come from Cornelius the centurion. He is a righteous and God-fearing man, who is respected by all the Jewish people. A holy angel told him to have you come to his house so that he could hear what you have to say." ASV 23 So he called them in and lodged them. And on the morrow he arose and went forth with them, and certain of the brethren from Joppa accompanied him. NIV 23 Then Peter invited the men into the house to be his guests. The next day Peter started out with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa went along. ASV 24 And on the morrow they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius was waiting for them, having called together his kinsmen and his near friends. NIV 24 The following day he arrived in Caesarea. Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. ASV 25 And when it came to pass that Peter entered, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him. NIV 25 As Peter entered the house, Cornelius met him and fell at his feet in reverence. ASV 26 But Peter raised him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man. NIV 26 But Peter made him get up. "Stand up," he said, "I am only a man myself." ASV 27 And as he talked with him, he went in, and findeth many come together: NIV 27 Talking with him, Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. ASV 28 and he said unto them, Ye yourselves know how it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to join himself or come unto one of another nation; and [yet] unto me hath God showed that I should not call any man common or unclean: NIV 28 He said to them: "You are well aware that it is against our law for a Jew to associate with a Gentile or visit him. But God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean. ASV 29 wherefore also I came without gainsaying, when I was sent for. I ask therefore with what intent ye sent for me. NIV 29 So when I was sent for, I came without raising any objection. May I ask why you sent for me?" ASV 30 And Cornelius said, Four days ago, until this hour, I was keeping the ninth hour of prayer in my house; and behold, a man stood before me in bright apparel, NIV 30 Cornelius answered: "Four days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me ASV 31 and saith, Cornelius, thy prayer is heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. NIV 31 and said, 'Cornelius, God has heard your prayer and remembered your gifts to the poor. ASV 32 Send therefore to Joppa, and call unto thee Simon, who is surnamed Peter; he lodgeth in the house of Simon a tanner, by the sea side. NIV 32 Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He is a guest in the home of Simon the tanner, who lives by the sea.' ASV 33 Forthwith therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore we are all here present in the sight of God, to hear all things that have been commanded thee of the Lord. NIV 33 So I sent for you immediately, and it was good of you to come. Now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to tell us." ASV 34 And Peter opened his mouth and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: NIV 34 Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism ASV 35 but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is acceptable to him. NIV 35 but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right. ASV 36 The word which he sent unto the children of Israel, preaching good tidings of peace by Jesus Christ (He is Lord of all.) -- NIV 36 You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. ASV 37 that saying ye yourselves know, which was published throughout all Judaea, beginning from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached; NIV 37 You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached-- ASV 38 [even] Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. NIV 38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. ASV 39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom also they slew, hanging him on a tree. NIV 39 "We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, ASV 40 Him God raised up the third day, and gave him to be made manifest, NIV 40 but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. ASV 41 not to all the people, but unto witnesses that were chosen before of God, [even] to us, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. NIV 41 He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen--by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. ASV 42 And he charged us to preach unto the people, and to testify that this is he who is ordained of God [to be] the Judge of the living and the dead. NIV 42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. ASV 43 To him bear all the prophets witness, that through his name every one that believeth on him shall receive remission of sins. NIV 43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name." ASV 44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all them that heard the word. NIV 44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. ASV 45 And they of the circumcision that believed were amazed, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit. NIV 45 The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. ASV 46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, NIV 46 For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said, ASV 47 Can any man forbid the water, that these should not be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit as well as we? NIV 47 "Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit just as we have." ASV 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. NIV 48 So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked Peter to stay with them for a few days.
